Ev and the first day of preschool

This kid started preschool last week. I took this photo of Everett James right before he walked in. I still see him as a baby (especially when he throws the mother of all tantrums) and I just couldn't believe how grown up he looked in the photo. Like a future projection of his little self. My not-so-baby middle baby just walked right into his new classroom, hugged his teacher, and waved goodbye. I had tears in my eyes and hung by the door, figuring he would start to cry as soon as he saw all of us leave. I was slowly starting to walk away or rather my husband was slowly starting to nudge me when he ran out. He waved a confident wave to let me know he was good and then he ran back inside.

And just like that, he's a boy. Send wine, please.
